the filing clearedtrp refusing release any tax returns. and sources close to the president's outside legal team say that in that tweet where he says i'm being investigated, he was simply referring to the published reports of him being under investigation. it was not conceding that he is, in fact, under investigation. so it's a distinction they are trying to make. also, vice president mike pence hired an outside lawyer as well. and friday he told reporters that is just a matter of something very routine. >> kelly o'donnell, thank you. protesters took to the streets overnight outrages at the acquittal of the minnesota police officer who fatally shot and killed a man during a traffic stop. the aftermath broadcast live on facebook. nbc's blake mccoy is live in st. paul, minnesota,wi

s jurors can deliberate for as long as they want to. the pecstart the case all over again. cosby left the courthouse last night thanking his supporters and the jurors for their hard work. he stands accused of sexually assaulting andrea constand back in 2004, a former temple university employee. cosby said their encounter was consensual. now, if he's convicted, he faces up to ten years in prison. now, dozens of women have come forward in recent years to accuse cosby of sexual misconduct, but this is the only time he can face criminal charges. when the jury reconvenes this morning, we could have a verdict at any moment or the deliberations could continue all day and into the night yet again. sheinelle? >> ron allen, thank you. katie is a former
katieodold the judge they deadl once. re?il >> i don't think so. i think you're going to get a verdict today. and the reason why i say that is 52-plus hours of deliberation, those jurors want a result. but what is interesting is the continuous readback of the testimony. not only from the trial, but from prior depositions given by cosby. he has to figure out which way it is going to go. but i agree with what ron says, whoever is the hold-out or the hold-outs, plural, they are standing the ground right now and not backing off their convictions in this case. >> based on some of the questions that the jurors have asked the judge, and there have been a w
yesterday at one point they asked about the deafilr fr bill. i think they wanted to hear from bill cosby. it was a defense decision strategically not to have him testimony because his exposure and cross-examination would have been profound, considering his prior sworn testimony. but here's the bottom line, you are not goucing to hear another allen charge from this judge. an allen charge is a dynamite charge, you want to blow up whatever the road is to getting a verdict. if the jury comes back to say they are deadlocked, the judge won't order them to go back for deliberations. thi i think it is done today no matter what. >> i think the judge is pushing the jury to reach a verdict. >> you can do a second allen charge or a third. but the risk is you look to start to look coercive demanding that the jury go back to reach a de

well, it will be another hot one. let's check in with tom. here we are with the typical summer weather hanging in there. we have patchy dense fog around the region from the beaches all the way into the mountains. and otherwise just some low clouds will be with us here. storm team 4 radar not showing anything coming from the clouds, all dry under the low cloud cover, just humid and muggy. temperatures will be climbing into the mid-80s this afternoon. might get an isolated passing thundershower this afternoon as well as again sunday afternoon. highs near 90 tomorrow. maybe morning fog on sunday. then on up monday, partly sunny, hot and humid up near 90. and a likelihood of severe afternoon and evening storms on monday. some of them could produce damaging winds, hail and some very heavy downpours. that's on monday. then tuesday, a little less humid. might get some showers midweek here on wednesday and
next weekend, maybe some back now on a saturday morning, the 17th day of june. look at the kids out here from coast to coast. a big saturday morning crowd. we'll step out later to join the party. back inside studio 1a, i'm sheinelle jones alongside craig melvin and dylan dreyer. here's what is making news this morning, a desperate search is underway for seven u.s. sailors missing off the coast of japan after their navy destroyer collided with a container ship four times its size. at least three crew members including the captain have been airlifted to local hospitals. and we're learning new details this morning about the congressional baseball shooter. authorities telling nbc news he was carrying a hit list with the names of house republicans on .
even spoke to the gunman ault i national news. obviously, she's referring to the recent terror attack in london, manchester and this week's deadly inferno of the apartment building in london. and this morning a massachusetts teenager is facing 20 years behind bars after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a very high-profile criminal case. she was on trial for urging her boyfriend over the phone to kill himself. morgan radford has more on that. morgan, good morning. >> reporter: that's right, guys, good morning. this is a tragic tale of depression and teen suicide. after six days of he said/she said testimony, a judge made a controversial ruling that one person can be held legally responsible for the suicide of another. a bombshell verdict. >> we now find you guilty. >> reporter: michelle carter wiping away tears after a judge convicted her of
manslaughter, saying she c suff himself with carbon monoxide, leag family shattered. >> it's been a very tough time for our family. and we would like to just process the verdict. >> reporter: the family's lawyers argue that roy could have been saved. >> were it not for the actions of michelle carter, conrad roy would still be alive. >> reporter: the decision was sent straight to a judge. at the heart of his verdict was the critical moment when roy expressed doubt. roy texted, i'm freaking out again, i'm overthinking. carter responded, i thought you wanted to do this. the time is right and you're ready. you just need to do it. when he later got scared and left the car, carter texted a friend, i told him to get back in. i couldn't have him live that way. >> this court finds that instructing mr. roy to get back
a carter. >> reporter: her defense team stunned. >> i'm disappointed. i'm not going to comment any further. >> reporter: they argue roy was determined to kill himself with or without carter's help. citing a 2012 chilling tape. >> you don't have to be happy. >> reporter: carter faces up to 20 years behind bars. the verdict sending a strong message about the power of words. >> one of the concerns that some people might have is the slippery slope concern. michelle carter, horrible actions. what about the next case? will it be so horrible? or will prosecutors also be involved in manslaughter charges? >> reporter: carter will be sentenced as an adult on the 20th. even though this event happened when she was just 17 years old. she has no contact with the roys. and the final made a final plea to anyone struggli
help before it isprecutor katie have you. thank you for being back. this may surprise a lot of folks because suicide is generally thought of as an act that is done with one's own freewill, under one's own freewill, what does this case mean moving forward with regards to precedent? >> it's a huge precedent-setting case, craig. because right now the judge has determined by way of his verdict of guilty for involuntary manslaughter for michelle carter that words are now weapons. just like bullets in a gun, if you use the right word and you are actually using those words against a defendant, you can be convicted. now, guys, we heard from morgan, two critical determinations made by the judge to support the finding of guilt. one, she ordered him to get back in the car when she texted him and said, i can't do it. she said, go back and do it. she coul
call for the helthsgusting as i does encouraging someone to commit suicat not fall under free speech. >> well, at this point, legally, all of the elements of involuntary manslaughter were met by the prosecution. meaning that if you know that there's a substantial likelihood of harm to a victim, and you do something by way of reckless conduct as evidence by what she did, michelle carter did, then you can be found guilty of that crime. >> then looking forward, she's looking at 20 years in prison, what do you expect her sentence to be? >> her range can be anywhere from probation to 20 years. what i expect, guys, is a sentencing on august 3rd of some type of jail time followed by lengthy probation. but i also expect a serious appeal done by her lawyer to go as far up as the massachusetts supreme court. because this is a new construction of the law of involuntary manslaughter in the state of massachusetts. >> that d
for the appeal? >> it is so new properly by the judge. phang, thank you so much. ans back with another check of the weather. what are we looking at here this weekend? >> dangerous heat in the southwest. we are looking at perhaps record-breaking high temperatures. we've got excessive heat warnings all through the southwest, including most of california down through arizona and even over into texas and oklahoma, up into the midwest we have heat advisories. so 55 million people will see some extreme heat. temperatures well over 100 degrees in the southwest. and we're also looking at high humidity down south. that makes it feel warmer because your body can't sweat it out as easily. and you end up with those warmer feels-like temperatures. phoenix today, 110 degrees. el paso, 106. that's 13 degrees above average. as we look to parts of california on sunday, the record in palm ng
130 degrees. look at palm springs on tuesday, 121 degrees. the all-time record is 122. we'll be close to that in palm springs by tuesday of next week. that's a look at the weather across the country, now here's a peek out your window. good morning, we have low clouds and the patchy fog. we have it around the region that will be dissipating gradually throughout the rest of the morning. then after that, we'll into the mid-80s with an isolated thundershower this afternoon and again on sunday afternoon. a little hotter tomorrow. then some severe storms are looking more likely now monday afternoon into the evening. some of them could do damaging winds and hail and heavy downpours. less humid on tuesday, maybe a few more showers midweek. and then next saturday a week from today, scattered storms are possible in the afternoon. >> that's your latest forecast. okay. still ahead, c
